Quick answer, change [<Name of Missing Index, sysname,>] to a real index name like ix_USER_LOGS_TIME and run it.
CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [<Name of Missing Index, sysname,>]
ON [USER_LOGS] ([TIME])
INCLUDE ([DOCUMENT_ID])
GO

yes, that will  create the index recommended by the execution plan.  Just a note, do not just create all indexes even if they are "recommended" by MS.  First test performance before and then again after to make sure it really helps, sometimes it still does not.  Also, the evaluation by the execution plan is in isolation, not taking everything else your system may do in consideration, so it is up to you to make the final decission on if it is really the best thing for your overall system.

Definitely don't automatically create all indexes the query plan "tells" you to.

However, in the this case the index looks small so I would create it.

In fact, it might be best to consider clustering the table on time, but that would require more investigation to determine properly.
